Watch the Halo series on Canal+
Halo blows up Paramount meters
Indeed, according to the latest results published by Paramount+, the streaming service saw its audience explode in the first quarter of 2022. The platform thus recorded no less than 6.8 million newcomers, bringing the total number of subscribers to a just over 40 million. A massive influx of users to be credited, among other things, to the Halo series, exclusive to Paramount+.
In addition, the American group also announces a (logical) explosion of its revenues during the past quarter, with no less than 585 million dollars, an increase of 148%. Obviously, the Halo series is not the only one to be at the origin of this success, since the platform also hosts Star Trek Picard or even 1883.
Remember that the CEO of Paramount, Bob Bakish, has great ambitions for the streaming platform, since the latter is aiming for a total of 100 million subscribers by 2024. The American offer should also soon land in France, via… Canal+.
For the record, the Halo series has already been confirmed for a season 2, despite fairly mixed feedback from the first episodes already broadcast. A Halo series which benefits from a colossal budget, since we recently mentioned no less than 10 million dollars per episode. The last three episodes will be broadcast during this month of May, before the arrival in a few months of season 2.
